cvs bug or feature?

Hello,

I am running cvs 1.11.17 on linux and experience the following problem:

When checking out directories *and* files from the top-level directory of the cvs repository, only directories checked out *after*
the last file appear correctly in CVS/Entries and CVS/Entries.log,
respectively. The problem is that later cvs updates will only
affect the directories listed in CVS/Entries(.log).

Here is an example (directories 'ccd' and 'reco', plain file 'Makefile',
more shell output at the end of this message):

# Here, all works fine. Makefile is checked out first.
%cvs co Makefile ccd reco
%cat CVS/Entries
/Makefile/1.7/Fri Jun 22 08:48:40 2001//
D
%cat CVS/Entries.Log
A D/ccd////
A D/reco////
% cvs update
cvs update: Updating ccd
cvs update: Updating reco

#Now the strange behaviour. Note that 'Makefile' is now 2nd.
%rm -rf *
%cvs co ccd Makefile reco
%cat CVS/Entries
/Makefile/1.7/Fri Jun 22 08:48:40 2001//
D
%cat CVS/Entries.Log
A D/reco//// ######## ccd is missing %cvs update
######## ccd is therefore not updated
? ccd
cvs update: Updating .
U .cvsignore
U Doxyfile
U recompile
cvs update: Updating reco

I would be grateful for any hints. Is this just
a feature and plain files should not be kept in the top level
directory of the cvs respository?

Regards,

Ulli

PS: The same happens with cvs 1.11.5 and 1.9.
